Think the name of the gif files is "comm_splash.gif". Replace that file
with image/gif you want.

I've been doing so up to Creo 2.0 to add the build number to the splash screen.
Here's an example

For Creo 2.0 the file is located at
%CREOINSTALLDIR%\Common Files\M140\text\resource\creo_parametric_com_splash.gif


But in Creo 3.0 it's a different story.
The splash screens are now compiled into one DLL
%CREOINSTALLDIR%\M020\Common Files\proe\text\compiled_resource\splash_resources.dll
This file contains 184 splash screens:



I imagine extracting all GIF's (which are actually PNG's), change the one you need like below) and recreate the dll.

Does anyone know how to recreate such a DLL?
(I tried it with Visual Studio but didn't succeed)


Kind regards,

Olaf Corten

Mind you, these are the kind of tools "script kiddies" (beginning

before using.

I think Visual Studio also contains a resource editor, but maybe that is
what you already tried?

I forgot to mention: you need to keep the new image in exactly the same
format as the old one, i.e. same size, same bitplane depth, same
encoding scheme, etc. You can't just replace a gif with any other gif.

Best regards,
Patrick
